‘Dark money’ group puts up $1 million to attack Malloy ( Oct 26, 2014 )

The money is poison, always present...you're all seeing a lot of negative ads, too?

A new player entered Connecticut's race for governor over the weekend as a "dark money" group from Ohio contributed $1.17 million to Grow Connecticut, the super PAC behind a $6.7 million advertising campaign to defeat Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

The money came from A Public Voice, Inc., which is based at the West Chester, Ohio office of David R. Langdon, a lawyer who has represented a network of conservative non-profit groups in a legal fight with the IRS over their tax-exempt status and is active opposing gay marriage, among other causes.

Grow Connecticut, which is allied with the Republican Governors Association, immediately used the contribution to purchase nearly $1 million of television advertising attacking Malloy, the first-term Democrat locked in a close race with Republican Tom Foley.

The dark-money contribution, so named for the inability to readily trace its sources, is the biggest in Connecticut's race for governor. There is plenty of big money flowing into the race, but it has come from groups whose donors are publicly disclosed either to the IRS or Federal Election Commission.

1. How this is not even mentioned by the media, this corruption of democracy, shows you how

much they value the ad money more than exposing the corruption.

The money was immediately used to purchase ads...how is that not pure political pimping and whoring?

Foley should be forced to put a Bought By Secret Donors" button in public.

And the spokesperson for the dark money super pad does not give a fart where the money came from...this is apolitical money laundering operation made legal....it is mind boggling how this is ignored by the media. Gratitude, I guess.
